The only Vick busier than Michael during the the New Orleans Saints' commanding 21-3 first-half performance against the Philadelphia Eagles was Vick's brother Marcus, who used his Twitter account to throw pretty much every possible aspect of the Eagles organization under the bus as his brother's team was going down fast. Starting from the bottom up ("Game time!"), and as Philly couldn't seem to do anything right, Marcus Vick flat-out blew Twitter up.

After the 28-13 loss was in the books, it sounded as if little brother was in a bit of trouble.

"He tweeted that during the game? I'm sorry. I'm unaware of that," Michael Vick said after the game, when asked if he felt the way his brother does about Vick's teammates. "That's something I'm really going to have to address once I leave here. We're out there fighting as hard as we can, giving it everything we've got, and that's certainly not the case. I love each and every guy in that locker room, and if I could make every play right I would. I know they would do the same, so that's certainly not the case."

Like his brother, Marcus Vick has quite the checkered past. He was unable to stay on the Virginia Tech football team due to on- and off-field issues, and made no real impact in the NFL after the Miami Dolphins gave him a shot as an undrafted free agent following the 2006 NFL draft. He's been charged with brandishing a firearm, molestation of a minor, fraud, driving on the wrong side of a street, reckless driving, driving on a suspended license, and several probation violations.

Not to mention his inevitable stay in Twitter jail if he doesn't knock it off.
